The end of the year: Allowing things move on

https://i0.wp.com/homepage.ntlworld.com/thegrinch/photogallery/Photos060204/flowers%20in%20the%20melting%20snow.JPGWe may think that letting go means not having, or getting rid of something; but actually we can just allow it to go, rather than holding on to it or trying to throw it away. Sometimes just accepting and recognising is enough. It is a way of letting go of the aversion, the negativity. Like every other condition that we experience: if it arises, it will cease. And usually it ceases much more quickly if we can really let it go. Sometimes people use the expression ‘just letting be’.
